couscous salad

couscous

Saturday night I realized that I needed a side dish to take to the church covered dish luncheon and I was at a loss. I had cous cous and some fresh veggies so I whipped up a fresh spring salad. It was delish, light and relativity healthy!

Here is how it went:

Cous Cous Salad

1 box of cous cous, cooked as directed

2 cucumbers, seeded and chopped

6 Roma tomatoes, chopped

1/2 Vidalia onion, chopped fine

8 oz crumbled Feta cheese

1/2 c olive oil

1/4 c balsamic vinegar

salt  pepper to taste

fresh oregano, flat leaf parsley, and mint

lemon zest

cook cous cous as box states, set to side; chop all your veggies, add spices, vinegar and oil, toss the feta and add cous cous. Chill for several hours or overnight.

ENJOY- Bird
